Prep Time25 minsCook Time20 minsTotal Time45 mins

 6 Chicken Drumsticks
 ¼ cup Almond Flour
 2 Eggs
 1 cup Pork Rinds, crushed
 OPA! Chicken & Seafood Blend

1

Stir the almond flour and OPA! Chicken & Seafood Blend in a medium shallow bowl. Set aside.

2

In a second medium bowl, whisk together the eggs. Set aside.

3

Crush pork rinds by either placing in a ziploc bag and crushing or place in food processor and blend to small granules.

4

In a third bowl, mix the crushed pork rinds and more of the OPA! Chicken & Seafood blend.

5

Dredge the chicken pieces in the almond flour mixture, dip in the eggs, shake off the excess, then press into the pork rind mixture.

HELPFUL HINT - Keep most of the third mixture in a separate bowl and add a little at a time to the bowl where you'll be coating the chicken. That way, it won't get clumpy too fast.

6

Lightly grease the air-fryer metal basket and arrange the breaded chicken on it in a single layer, without touching.

7

Place the basket into the air fryer. Cook the fried chicken in the air fryer for 20 minutes, until it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
